in town for the marathon Oct 11-14, where to carb load with pasta? and other recommendations

Thanks all for the recommendations! I ended up getting a reso at Grace when I called, so very much looking forward to that. All the Italian places look quite good, so have much to choose from.

in town for the marathon Oct 11-14, where to carb load with pasta? and other recommendations

Hi all,

Coming in for the marathon Fri Oct 11 - Mon 14.

On the Friday night, I will be dining alone. Would love to try Girl and the Goat, goosefoot, or Grace, but all are full on OpenTable (or don't have solo diner resos) From the options that I can find available, I'm deciding between Blackbird and Acadia... Thoughts? How are these for solo diners? I'm up for other suggestions. I will probably make a reservation at one and try for an early walk-in at GatG.

On the Saturday, I plan to carb load! Where is good for pasta? I'm staying at Hotel Burnham, if that makes a difference.

After running 26 miles, on Sunday I'm planning to eat a lot at either The Publican or Frontera Grill (or both) with a few friends. Recommendations for after-dinner drinks near each would be helpful too.

Will be heading back to Toronto on the Monday but am looking for a good breakfast/brunch spot that is serving on Mondays.

Please Critique My Toronto Must-Try List (Updated and Revised)

This is a great list! It serves as a great guide for someone trying to discover Toronto. I see you have Red Fish in the Brunch category but not Seafood as well?...

Staying at Eventi and Seeing Sleep No More

Staying at Eventi and Seeing Sleep No More

Hi all,

Thanks for the great recommendations and discussions. My friend and I are coming in to NYC from Toronto next weekend for her birthday. Saturday night we are going to Sleep No More and were thinking of having a late dinner afterwards somewhere nearby. I'm debating between Co. and Ovest for pizza but would be up for other suggestions. Also we would probably grab a few drinks before heading back to our hotel, Eventi. I'm thinking Breslin or Rattle N Hum but recommendations would be helpful.

On Sunday, we're going to stop by Clinton Street Baking Co. for breakfast before the Chinese New Year parade. That evening we have reservations at Public or Acme. Which one would you choose? I had wanted to go to NoMad but they were booked up when I got around to it. We're planning to visit the MoMA on Monday morning before heading out. Where can we get breakfast around the museum? Thanks all very much.
